Grown from seed so that the culture maintains heterogenity between them, Lavender High Altitude Extra Fine is grown around 1300m above sea level in the French Alps by a group of farmers (the same farmers who produce our famed Lavender Mont Blanc Extra Fine) who have been producing lavender essential oil for almost 40 years. An aromatic evergreen sub-shrub with linear or lance-shaped leaves. The essential oil is obtained via steam distillation of the freshly cut flowering tops and stalks. Due to extreme high altitude, its relaxant properties is significantly much higher. This lavender has the A.O.P (Appellation d'Origine Protegee) label.
